A mountaineer in India gets captured by the British during World War II, fleeing until circumstances bring him in the company of the Dalai Lama in Tibet.

A story about a man, until it nosedives straight into the politics of the hostile takeover that turned Tibet into an autonomous region in communist China.

An American captain, suffering from PTSD-induced nightmares so bad he became alcoholic, is brought back into the trade as a consultant and trainer to suppress the civil war in Japan and fight against its old warrior class, the samurai.

Dare I say this is one of the greats. It has various classic elements without being tiring and obvious, and maintains a great pace and tone.

On the way to moving to a new town, a girl stumbles upon and is trapped in a pocket dimension with an old Japanese bath house run by spirits and non-humans.

SHE SHOUTS A LOT

A spectacular movie. Youthful but with a balance of fantasy spectacle and horror.

A man, waking with no memories and thought to be a serial killer, flees his pursuers and not only learns he isn't who they think he is, but they aren't who they think they are either.

A fantastic movie.. at no point was I bored. To me, this one of the foundations of a particular movie style. It isn't that it's whatever kind of "neo-noir" but that it tells a tale about reality itself.

A recently-ex-con world-renown hacker is swept into the well-planned efforts to fund long-term anti-terrorist terrorism.

I-like-hyphens.

Ignoring the Hollywood-hacker bullshit, it's a good movie, particularly because so few, at least at its release, would be so A-class and yet have this particular topic. It helps shape the understanding of the passion behind Lawful Evil.

During the thrashing of an epileptic seizure, an editor stitches together bits of various unrelated shorts into a single movie filled with famous people and great music.

If one can labour past the non science-fiction, it's pretty good. In fact, I think if one cut out everything except two of the storylines, they would make for good shorts. I may do that one day.

I wouldn't imagine this to have been a critical success.

An investigator of airplane disasters learns their passengers are critical to the plans of a woman he falls in love with.

This is one of the early time travel movies which really grabbed me and brought me into the genre. I don't know that I'd call it great or could strongly recommended it to others, but I like it a lot.

A student is approached by his future-self, and is sent into a time loop when he ignores his own advice.

Quite a good movie. With a great pace and a particularly good sound track, I found this quite emotional.

A scientist from the future goes back in time to do (stuff that I wasn't paying attention enough to figure out), but his assistant's daughter goes back to stop him with the help of one of the grandfather's of time travel.

For an old TV-movie this is pretty good.

  • The actual movie is copyright 1986
